I can't wait for our upcoming spring break trip to NOLA. I haven't been back in 17 years. This time, I am traveling with my husband and 11 year old child for four nights.
Here are my plans. Let me know if you think I should include anything else or if I should skip some of these things.
Monday: Day 1: Arrive in the afternoon. Get taxi to Sheraton Hotel. Check into a Club Level room. Go for appetizers/snacks at Club Level. Walk to the French Quarter in the early evening. Look at shops in the quarter. Eat dinner at Napolean House. Go to Cafe Beignet for beignets or Cafe Du Monde.
Tuesday Day 2: Have breakfast at the hotel club level. Catch street car to the Zoo. Have lunch at Audubon Golf Club. Relax at hotel outdoor pool in the afternoon. Go for appetizers at the hotel club level. Go to dinner at Deanies. See a music show at Snug Harbor.
Wednesday Day 3. Breakfast at hotel club level. Get Sandwiches at Verti Marte (they deliver). River Plantation Tour picks us up at hotel at 12:30. (pack sandwiches, snacks). Dinner at Palm Court for dining and hearing music.
4. Thursday: Club level breakfast, 10:00 a.m.m go to New Orleans School of Cooking Demonstration (lunch there). In the afternoon go to Mardi Gras World. Hotel in late afternoon to relax around pool, appetizers at hotel club level. Nawlins Cookery for dinner. Creole Creamery for ice cream dessert.
Thanks for those that can give me some advice as to my plans, which I am willing to change if you think I should try other venues for a family.
